    Has anyone tried to request a key within the last week? My last key says I have reached the activation limit so I tried to get a new one. I have requested 3 (with different emails) and haven't received a response. I checked the spam folder too...

    Thanks,
    -jj

    It seems like it is a total crap shoot if they will send you an activation key. The best way to get a response is to contact Cyberlink directly. I did one time and they responded.

    Enter the same passcode for Directv2pc as you have for the receiver you are using. They use the same code.

    Have you DL'ed the D2PC app directly at the D* website, same page as the key request if I'm not mistaken? I think all you have to do is start the DL and it triggers the activation key email. Just trash the the DL'ed app after it downloads as you don't need it.

    The new advisor gives me two more red lights than I had before.

    Screen Capture Protection : No No
    Graphics Card Driver : 8.561.0.0 No

    I found that the driver had recently been updated, so I installed it, but that didn't change the results from the Advisor.

    I've installed 5102 this week-end and watched recordings from FX HD and SPEED HD channels. The surround sound seems unusual for all of them: the voices come out of the front left & right channels, and other sounds come out of the center channel. As far as I know these are supposed to work the other way around. I am getting this unusual behavior from both:

    - 5102 running on a recent version of Windows 7.
    - The public version from directv.com, running on Vista.

    Is anyone else seeing (hearing) the same behavior? Is it a content provider problem or a DirecTV problem?

    Other sources of audio/video, such as Cyberlink PowerDVD playing blu-ray discs, running on the same computer, send the voice to the center channel, as expected.

    Thanks.

    - HR21 Receiver
    - ATI HD 4350 video card
    - ATI WDDM 1.1. video driver included in Win7
    - Realtek HDMI_R218 audio driver – from Realtek’s web site.
    - HDMI A/V through Sony STR-DG820 receiver.

    I watched a NIN concert on Palladia the other day and the center channel was the left front for half of the concert. It was a provider problem I guess.

    Having Installation issues, passed all the new requirements with the new advisor, all green lights, previous beta worked, new beta causes a

    DirecTV Error
    Error 1904.Module C:\Program Files\DirecTV\DirecTV\Kernal\DMP\MediaRenderAdaptor.dll failed to register. HRESULT -2147220473. Contact your support personnel.

    Running a Nvidia Geforce 9800GTX+ with the latest 182.50 drivers, XP Pro SP2, now SP3
    did not help to install SP3 for xp pro. Did some research and the general error seems to be related to msvcrt.dll , but I confirmed this file working, and no malware infections. I also disabled Norton Internet Security 2009, that did nothing to help either.

    I tried to manually register the DLL and it does not help either.
    using regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\DirecTV\DirecTV\Kernel\DMP\MediaRenderAdaptor.dll"

    RegSvr32
    DllRegisterServer in C:\Program Files\DirecTV\DirecTV\Kernal\DMP\MediaRenderAdaptor.dll failed.
    return code was: 0x80040154

    Now what.! (edited, seems to put a space in the adaptor.dll, there is no space)

    Well I managed to get the MediaRenderAdaptor.dll to get registered by issuing this command.

    regsvr32 C:\WINDOWS\system32\atl.dll

    I will check it tonite and see if that works, as I did this using remote Desktop.

    Well I finally bit the bullet and reformated the hard drive and reinstalled Vista and all of my programs. I can now activate DIRECTV2PC and it runs just fine from all of my receivers even the one that uses WGA600N to wireless attach.

    HD looks great with the new PC. It is a Core2 Quad Q9300 with a Nvidia GEforce 9600 GT. :):dance07::gott:

    The Advisor is now detecting ATI driver level 8.591.0.0 and is no longer flagging the driver or the Screen Capture Protection.

    Where to get serial numbers for Directv2PC. I have tried with the form on the directv website, but after several tries again, still I don't get any serials in my mailbox. Has anything changed with the registration method?I have 2 working serials which I have used up unfortunately because my PC crashed.

    Who do I report this serial number problem to?

    Did you DL the D2PC app from the DirecTV site? You have to do that before the activation email gets triggered to be sent. If you have been doing that, try a different email address.

    I've re-installed my PC twice since first trying the initial Beta.... only to just find out we're limited to 2 activations? Who's bright idea was this?

    By the time Win 7 RTM hits I'll be out of email addresses.

    Well NEW PROBLEMS !, I have Satriani Live! on my dvr, I recorded it in Nov-2007 and it plays fine, but anything else, Like Simpsons from Sunday, it sits with a black screen for a while then it says this.

    DIRECTV2PC cannot play the video content on your output device, because it can not apply hardware protection mechanism. Try updating your driver or re-select the video content.

    Real nice, I got top stuff, and all green lights on the new version of the advisor, I am running a Geforce 9800GTX+ 512MB video card 182.50 drivers, the newest available from Nvidia, Windows XP sp3, 4GB ram. Soundblaster X-fi Xtreme PCI with extra ram. And the video is connected with a DVI cable to a DELL Precision 2208W 22" wide screen. thats it. The old beta played everything.

    here is a quote from DELL's website. for the 2208WFP monitor

    VGA & DVI-D connectors provides choice in how the user connects the monitor to the computer, and the HDCP compliant DVI-D enables viewing of copy-protected high-definition content, expanding the range of viewable media and content.


    Now what.
